An Open Letter to Rebecca Wilson, re: Gary Ablett Jr.

Hi Rebecca,

I totally get that you write for the Herald Sun and that your job entails expressing your opinion and I dig that. I really do. It’s just that, well, I really dislike sitting down for my morning latte and reading rubbish in my newspaper.

And this morning, when I read your column, I thought it was rubbish. And I figure you won’t mind me saying that because you always express your opinion and say what you think, and I’m just following your lead.

I’ve read and seen a lot since Gary Ablett Jr announced he was leaving the Geelong Football Club yesterday, but what you wrote, what was in my paper this morning, really got under my skin. Because you didn’t just attack Gary, you attacked the entire generation he belongs to. My generation.
